Found 16th Jun 2010
After doing some basic research on the internet and disabling/uninstalling all my plugins etc and uninstalling/reinstalling the program I still get the same problem of firefox not responding.

Is anybody else encountering the same problem???

  1. Misc
  2. Firefox

All the time, its always after I have shut Firefox down and tried restarting it, not during general use, after I shut it down I always use task manager to kill it otherwise it hangs,

Is this your case or is it during use? If during use try disabling any add-ons one by one see if its one of those, or disable them all then re-enable one by one which is probably the better way.

Try creating a new profile.

Do you have MS Antispyware installed as this is known to cause FF to hang.

yeah it seems such a shame such a great browser has got lack of support for this problem, my problem occurs all the time including general use.


goto c:\user\\appdata\roaming\mozilla and delete the `Firefox` folder.

Restart firefox

(Note: Hidden folders must be shown to see the appdata folder, and the folder location specified above is only valid on windows vista or 7.

XP is: c\documents and settings\\application data\Mozilla\
